church, the evangelical lutheran church wanting to end all relationships with the state of israel, i think our country -- we are literally being occupied by a foreign government by the state of israel. i have to tell you, when you look at the economic apartheid on wall street where the american people are treading on one platform while the zionist regime in control of our country is trading, we are becoming a nation that is completely and utterly occupied. host: that was patrick from pennsylvania. hi, judy. caller: hi. i just want to say that my husband dave and i are very optimistic about the future. we are happy that the president won. our concern -- your last caller was talking about religion and the churches. we don't see why they should be playing a part in our government and big we are concerned about the separation of church and state. we are also concerned about the racial hatred that is going on, especially in florida. that is a concern because we live with that. i think a lot of it stems from fox news and too many people like rush limbaugh. free speech is great but when it
a hero. i would like your opinion about what is going on right now with israel and palestine. to gaza. i think they are acting upon hamas in order to put their blame -- against iran and see what your opinions would be. guest: that has been a mess for a long time and i believe we should be noninterventionists. we should not pick sides. i think it would be best for israel and best for that whole region, so i don't believe in getting involved. it is a real mess. it's been created by too much and too many outsiders interfering. but this gaza thing, i mean, attacking and bombing gaza, that doesn't make a whole lot of sense. what threat are the palestinians? to israel or anybody else? they are living in total poverty. they have an employment rate probably about 50%. sure, there are going to be militants. you have to understand why they're militants. you know, what is the reasons? they have been held more or less in bondage for decades now. it's a real mess. i think we should not be involved. i think the people there should solve the problems and eventually israel won't be able to depend upon t
in gaza rained down on israel this week. israelies were injured and at least one was killed. but it sure is right -- absolute right of self-defense is responded to defend its people. prime minister netanyahu said it best. the terrorists are committing a double war crime. they fire at israeli citizens and they hide behind palestinianian civilians. but the government in egypt, which was backed by the administration, has condemned israel, not hamas. the terrorist group hamas doesn't want peace with israel. it wants war. it kills israeli citizens and then hides behinds the skirts of palestinian women. israel has the moral right and duty to defend itself from the bar barrack hamas. the united states should be in total support of israel, our ally. the u.s. should be bold in its condemnation of hamas and the u.s. should be bold in this continuing war by terrorist, like hamas, on civilized nations and that's just the way it is. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from oregon rise? the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. blumenauer: thank you, madam speaker. perha
are fully deployed to the impacted region. king and democratic long island congressman steve israel want the army corps of engineers dispatched to long island. israel says the army corps of engineers can go into baghdad and kabul and turn the lights on, then it's time for them to come to new york and finish the job the utility company hasn't been able to. in washington, peter ducey, fox news. >>> well, it sent dozens of people running for safety in the middle of the night. a house explodes in indianapolis. look at these pictures. the flames then spread to other homes. we'll tell you what may be behind this deadly blast. >> and a grand opening like no other. a new mega store welcomes hundreds of customers at the newest naval exchange store on the campus of the walter reed military medical center. we'll show you that when we come back.  . >>> making headlines this morning, at least one person is dead after a home exploded in indianapolis. a number of people could be seen running to safety in just their pajamas. at least two homes were destroyed, several othe
that hope both here and in israel that the squeeze of sanctions will somehow hasten the regime change in iran. in other words it is some other purpose besides leverage for getting the concessions on the nuclear issue and that isn't withstanding the prospect that even if there were regime change, and i certainly wouldn't advise holding your breath and waiting for it, it would mean whoever comes into power and say they would fold on the nuclear issue, not likely given the broad support that a nuclear program is peaceful nuclear program has in iran. note also that a lot of the u.s. imposed sanctions as embedded in the legislation have had other issues besides the nuclear one stated as a rationale, human rights, that sort of thing, relations with terrorist groups, and so it would be very difficult here on the hill to get back down on that even if the negotiations went well with the iranians. all of these constraints do not go very well for taking advantage of that negotiating space that does exist, and showing flexibility in using sanctions for what they ostensibly ought to be used for wh
to supporters on capitol hill. she was joined by representative steve israel and congressman steny hoyer of maryland. >> it is going to be a good evening. our president is going to be our president. steve israel is assuring me we will pick up states in the house and yes, we think we're going to take back the house. i am so pleased to be year. -- to be here. we are fighting for the priorities our country knows are important. for the values that this country knows is critically important. for investing in education, in growing our jobs in america, in investing in protecting our environment and investing in the health care of our people. americans believe lyonesse priorities. i want to congratulate my friend steve israel for the extraordinary job he has done. i have gone through this country, i have been in almost 90 districts, 89 districts in this country. campaigning with extraordinary candidates. some incumbents khomeni challengers. they are extraordinary people who will do an excellent, outstanding job as a members of the congress. steve israel has set an objective. he has worked hard a
they say they're not comfortable with the presidency of on israel. -- the presidents stance on israel. >> what about voted on election day in the state of florida? is the state prepared, and could there be another possible repeat of what happened in 2000? >> statistically you would think of it do not favor something -- like what happened in 2000 again, but of course it could happen again. secondly, the big concern is the fact that we have historically long ballot. in florida, as in many states, a lot of those people but only in the major elections. they are paying attention to the race between president obama and mitt romney. there will vote on tuesday. when they get to the polls on tuesday it will be surprised because the ballot includes many judicial elections. it includes 11 proposed constitutional amendments. the ballot is very long, and there is no time limit on how long the person can take to boats. some election supervisors indicate they are concerned about the possibility of long lines of the polls on tuesday, which could lead a late night for results. to go we of heard some l
and the palestinians but earlier today israel shot down another hamas rocket aimed at tel aviv. israeli air strikes continue against hamas strongholds in gaza. divers searching for the two missing workers from an oil platform that caught fire in the gulf of mexico on friday have recovered a body near the site. four other workers are hospitalized with severe burns. president obama has arrived in thailand. his first stop on a three-day trip that includes the first visit to myanmar by a u.s. president. outspoken new jersey governor chris christie has been getting around. last night he was on saturday night live. he thanked his state's rescue and relief workers for their efforts during hurricane sandy. he then offered a critique of super storm tv coverage. >> i also do not want to thank the reporters that put themselves in danger by walking into the middle of a hurricane with their cameras. we don't need you to tell us there's a hurricane. we have windows. >> osgood: here's the day's weather forecast. mostly clear and mild pept in the pacific northwest where they're getting an early taste of winter. th
the daylights out of them with his policies toward israel. i think the military vote, both active and retired, very significant here in florida. and i think the christian, pro-life, per-family vote is very big. i do think that. neil: florida is very close to my right now. separated by about 1,000 votes. i don't know what it is about the state. whoever wins it has to win by a few hundred votes. it is what it is. i'm wondering, if it is disclosed in the polls have some , the governor up by five points, probably not realistic, but certainly close to that. 81 percent of the precincts in. a lawsuit for mitt romney, i would imagine, would be fatal, what did not? >> you know, it's hard to say it would be fatal, but up put it this way. at that point you're looking for the polls. you hope there is still one at the carotid artery. he needs to win florida. if he doesn't he has to win both virginia and ohio. it could be a long night, or it could be all over by 11:00 tonight. is just one of those things. some surprises. i think the big surprise of florida has been the margin of victory for bill melson in
, the president has not visited israel once. the jewish commercially -- community -- we feel he doesn't have our back. romney has made a strong point that he will have our back. host: did romney's relationship with the jewish community come up? guest: as a candidate he talks about the fact that he has a personal relationship dating back to time and harvard with ande minister aniston netanyahu that will be benefit. he said the united states position towards israel will be complete support. it was not clear how he would respond if israel tried to take out nuclear facilities in iraq. i think republicans feel they have made some headway, particularly in florida with jewish voters. we will see. host: brian mooney has covered politics in massachusetts for decades. he has been with "the boston globe" since 1988 and has been a political columnist. right now he goes by the title reporter. a story you did last year when health care was a big issue. looking back on the health-care issue, you recall that he went to get his official portrait done. he would be at his desk wearing a business suit and tie. host
made history. [applause] host: this tweet from benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister of israel, who congratulates u.s. president barack obama on his election victory. fort lauderdale, florida. independent line. caller: thank you for taking my call. host: did you vote yesterday or early in florida? caller: a voted early. actually, i went out and did some last minute can the scene for the present, and i will tell you -- can this -- canvassing for the president. i always try to keep myself informed, and one of the things i realized about mitt romney is although he was a good businessman, the businesses that he had or businesses that he consolidated and got rid of jobs. so, we also had another businessman that was a president, hoover, and the country went into a depression. we have a businessman, george bush, that was the president, and our country almost went into a depression after that. people have to realize that when our elected officials are irresponsible by saying we have to be like a household, the government is not run like our household. that is totally ridiculous. it is absol
the israel palestinian conflict, there was an attack, several hundred million what is called the denial of service attack. i think that is an example of something that reflects how prolific these are. host: let's look at a story from -- guest: that is significant and enter a couple of ways. the sheer magnitude of it is something that redefines paradigm when it comes to conflict and how we fight each other. in 2007 in estonia during a two week. , i do not know if you'll remember a massive cyber attack that resulted in not just infrastructure being taken down such as military or something uniquely defense, but even more severely, atms, gas pumping equipment, things that really impacted everyday people. i think when you saw that, even though it was five years ago and you see it now on a greater magnitude, it really illustrates the increasing importance that is needed on this issue. host: president obama took to the pages of "the wall street journal" on the threat he sees from cyber attacks. here is a story from a few days ago. what is the government impose a concerned about cyber? guest: t
what the middle east peace deal is going to be. that is a matter between israel and the palestinians, and the u.s. can nudge and between and all of that. but in the end, if netanyahu and the palestinians are not in the position to bring resolution to this, then at it is not really going to be something that president obama can do. certainly something he would like very much to do. netanyahu -- i mean, now that the election is over, i think we will see prime minister netanyahu have a recalculation of the relationship with obama and how it has to go forward. it has not been close in the previous four years. it has been pragmatic and grudgingly accepting a reality on both sides, but there is an opportunity for that to change. host: do you have thoughts on that, scott? guest: just a follow-up. netanyahu had a personal relationship with romney and was a very secret about who he wanted to win the election and that was not president obama, who applied quite a bit of pressure to israel in his first term to try to secure a peace deal called israel settlements in the west bank. israel felt sor
one nation that we should be nation-building with, and that's israel. because israel -- israel is -- that's god's chosen land. the jews are god's chosen people. host: ok, connie, let's give fred barnes a chance to comment. guest: well, i mean that was an issue between romney who was much more pro israel though publicly in particular. we'll see how that turns out. i personally don't begrudge him a vacation after the campaign, like to take one myself. but there was another part -- oh, yeah. what she said in the beginning about the republican party. is it really in deep trouble? i don't think so. obviously hispanics are a problem. younger senators and governors, they have 30 governors who are extremely important, 30 out of 50. like bob mcdonald in virginia and bobby jindal and scott walker in wisconsin and so on. republicans actually -- romney actually won i believe the middle class. if you have the middle class as people who make between $50,000 a year and $100,000 a year, romney won that group narrowly. the middle class is up for grabs but romney did well enough there but just n
right, my top issue is that there's all this controversy about whether or not israel is going to go to war with iran. and when president obama spoke about the big yellow bird, i don't think he was talking about the big yellow bird, i think he was talking, you know, big bird on tv, i think he was talking about china. china, you know, chinese people, oriental people are referred to as yellow. china has the largest population on earth, a billion people. they have so many people that they force women to have abortions. they have no respect for human life at all. and china is friends with iran. china is trading partners with iran. if we help israel go to war with iran, then we're going to have to deal with an angry china, and i think that's a really big problem, and we have to just put a stop to it and negotiate peace. >> well, as i said in the opening statement that, um, i really feel that our biggest problem is the deficit, but i believe that the reason why we haven't been able to, um, to lower the national debt is because our political system is broken. and we need to fix it, or this
. this cute cuddly couple live together at a petting zoo in israel. zoo keepers -- are they friends or is he using the kit ton fight off enemies or something? zoo keepers say the kitten wandered into the cage and now they refuse to be separated. the baboon carries the kitten around and cleans its fur. >> steve: it's adorable. >> alisyn: it is really adorable. there you go. >> steve: welcome back to wild kingdom. hour three now. >> brian: we have never a show without animals. we always have some type of animal on. >> steve: seems like it. >> alisyn: our signature. >> brian: time for your headlines. frightening surveillance pictures of a robber and the f.b.i this guy is called the ak 47 bandit. he struck again in idaho. he used his assault rifle and ordered employees into the safe when he made off with the the cash. he wound up other banks in california and washington. earlier this year, an officer was shot and seriously injured in one of the robberies. $70,000 reward. that seems low, to be honest -- is being offered. stop him. he's wearing jeans. >> steve: he forced an airplane to make an eme
at what happened recently in the conflict from hamas, the missiles that were being shot into israel, and the system to understand the importance of missile defense. that is a system that focuses on short-term -- short-range missiles, but we all saw the number of civilians that could be protected by the capacity of having a robust missile defense system, and i can't imagine why we wouldn't want to be in the position to make sure that the east coast of our country would be as protected as the west coast when it comes to an emerging threat from iran. and there's no question that the more we hear about the behavior of iran, the more troubled we should be as a country, not only are they -- do they have a robust missile development program, but we all know that they are also making efforts to acquire the capability of having a nuclear weapon. and so now is the time for us to act, not to find ourselves in 2015 with no plans as to how to deploy an east coast missile defense site to make sure that the east coast of our country has the same protection as the west coast, and now is the time to
evidence of that. of t dspite? >> of the dispute? >> ifill: well, richard murdoch. >> israel, rished murdoch became almost the third rail of local politics. even though what he said, you know, was consistent with-- it was-- and not indefensible. there appeared to be a callous, almost disregard for the terrible experience of being raped, let alone a pregnancy coming out of that rape. >> you talk about the gender issue. it's always important to stinguish between married women and single women. >> that's right. >> married women were very strongly for republicans, single women very strongly for democrats. the sociological trend over the past 20 years is there are a lot more single people, men and women. so the numbers just get bigger as the country goes into what they call living solo. >> woodruff: and it calls to mind the strategy that obama very transparently employed, talking about planned parenthood, talking about the position of the republicans on-- not just on abortion but on contraception, and there was a lot of criticism-- has be a lot of criticism-- >> i've heard criticism from
in and get something done. representative peter king and steve israel are requesting the army corps of engineers and the energy department take over repairs from the long island power authority. known as lipa whose work they have called abysmal. more than 15,000 people don't have power. what's worse is the lack of answers. >> some of us who actually get power, once that grid is turned on and our power is turned on we still don't have power because most of our electrical boxes are under water. need to get electricians and power lines put in because it was under water. it's time we need the power on so we can get our lives rebuilt. >>lipa hope to have 9 a% of the power restored by tuesday. but about 65,000 customers have such severe flood damage it will take extensive repairs before they can begin restoring power. new questions this morning about whether four americans could have been saved from the terror attack in benghazi. according to the pentagon's newly released time line. a special op.s team in croatia was told to prepare to deploy 2 to 4 hours after the attack started. the tea
among your constituents? the republicans and romney tried to say that the president through israel under the bus. that was the argument and romney made it at the republican convention. >> i think the reason that the president got 70% of the jewish vote, is because womens health, civil liberties, that's a natural home, and we were able to make sure the lies and distortions that they tried to sew were not working. >> john boehner today in his speech, he had a conciliatory tone, and he said the american people expect us to find common ground and we're willing to accept some additional revenue via tax reform. what's going to happen? >> i was happy to see an olive branch. president obama had the kitchen sink thrown at him, but incite of that, voters voted to move forward, and we need to recognize that balanced approach the president talked about in the campaign is what we need to work together towards. >> you sound on mptimistic. >> i am. >> an exciting lame duck session. >> still ahead, a nor'easter is pounding the same areaing pounded by superstorm sandy.

not be jeopardized for our one true ally in the middle east, the state of israel. this included showing some support for what is become widely dome of the iron rocket defense system. but our focus in the middle east has certainly not stopped there. we've gone to great lengths in this congress to zero in on what i believe is the greatest threat we have to our own national security, and that is a nuclear armed iran. i've been pleased to team with representative ted deutch and senator kirk on a number of bills to stem this -- and confront this threat. our actions have ranged from strengthening sanctions on iran's energy sector to promoting human rights and democracy inside iran and much more. in fact, one of our most important accomplishments in this congress will have been a strong sanctions package which passed both houses this summer and which included these provisions that we authored. finally, i'd like to highlight the ongoing work to pass a bipartisan budget agreement. this is an initiative that i have been proud to advance, starting with the bipartisan letter urging the supercommittee to go big,
in israel where diversity visas were received. or albania where we went to war to ensure the integrity and the saving of those people. or hungary or iceland, or maybe our strong ally, turkey. that's what diversity visas represent. and there is no reason to borrow from peter to pay paul f my friends would really pay attention to the recent charge of the november 6 election, they would know what america needs is comprehensive immigration reform. if i might in this debate of deficit reduction and the need for increased revenue, we know that if you had comprehensive immigration reform over 10 years, you would introduce them to the economy -- into the economy $1.5 trillion. that's a reason to come to the floor right now and vote this bill down and start in the next week and put on the floor the bills that mr. gutierrez and myself and many others at one time senator mccain, wanted to put on the floor of the senate and the house. my concern is that we try to come in a bipartisan manner. i introduced legislation, an amendment in the markup to say that let's study this issue of fraud with diver
